Today marks the end of a season for me, and the start of something new!
Today is my last day on staff at church. It has been a transition two years in the making, and now that it is here, I have very mixed emotions.
I have been on staff at our church working in the business office for almost 7 years, and on and around the staff since I moved to Washington in 2002. I LOVE my church. I LOVED being on staff. I LOVE working with our staff (we have one of the best!). And now I enter into a NEW season!
I have had a lot of people approach me and ask what’s next – so I thought I would blog it!
The short answer is I will be a stay at home mom. In other words I am not leaving to take another job somewhere else. However, I hardly plan to stay home With Brandon traveling a lot, and Zane the age that she is, it is very easy for us to take the opportunity to travel together! We love building the local church and being a resource to Pastors around the country as we represent our home church of Champions Centre and our Pastors Kevin and Sheila Gerald. It is an honor and an opportunity I have great appreciation for when Zane and I get the chance to travel with Brandon. I am happy we get to do this together. God has been so faithful as Brandon walks in his path of purpose, and this is just one more step for us as we follow after what God would do through us in this life.
Of course, we won’t go on every trip (thank goodness, because there are a lot of them!) That is when I am so excited to spend more time with my girl for the very short time we have until she is school age. She is such a sponge right now, soaking up everything she learns. So I am excited to get her in some classes (ballet maybe?) and spend some time outside!!!
To the question ARE WE MOVING – NO!! We are very firmly planted here in the PNW and in our home church Champions Centre and we are very happy to call this home base. Our roles are a bit different than they have looked in the past years, but we are very much still involved with the life of our church.
To the question ARE WE PREGNANT – NO! I am not preggo – and I don’t plan to be any time soon. Unless the Great Lord has other plans, we will just be the 3 amigos for awhile.
To the question AREN’T YOU GOING TO BE BORED – NO! I literally have never been bored a day in my life, and I don’t plan to start now. I have so many plans and looking forward to the freedom to explore!
All in all, I am very excited for my new season. I am excited to experience new things on the road as a family, and to pour into my little one at this very crucial age.
So what does this mean for my blog?
Well I will potentially have more time to think, be creative and produce more, which means there will be more to blog about! I will also be blogging about my experiences traveling – especially with a toddler (OH THE STORIES) and I hope to be a resource for you in many different ways!
Thank you for coming along with me on the journey so far, and I look forward to what this new season holds!!!
